Weddings

October 12, 2009

dummelhueI was reminded about how cool weddings can be this weekend.  Similar to my own ‘special day’, the wedding was for some very close friends of mine (Devin and Leah, pictured),and I knew deeply of their story and how their love for one another came to be.  The theme of their wedding was “Story”, and it is the beautiful description of the journey that brings two lives together.

A character that wants something and overcomes conflict to get it.

This is how author Donald Miller defines story.  Truly think about weddings today, not as an institution, but as the cimax of the story.  The marriage, then is the day-to-day growth of  a new life (a new story being written). 

The next time you find yourself at a wedding, perhaps your own, don’t merely observe the wedding…embrace the story.  The two lives being joined to make one new life is an incredible reminder of the relationship God wants to have with us. 

Devin, Leah… Congrats!
